Jump on the bandwagon by getting the newly released DVD to see what all the fuss is About.

    cannes-cafe-societyTired of science fiction soap operas or would be James Bond extravaganzas. thenSet sail for the 1930s as we see how a nerdy Brooklyn boy heads west to seek fame and fortune – to land a job I. Sunny Los Angeles. Hollywood to be precise.

    Give it up to Jesse Eisenberg for bearing his neurotic sole a la Woody. First stop on his trip is to see his uncle, a dynamo of a power agent in the Swifty Lazar mould.  In hopes of getting a job it’s up to his uncle, played deliciously by Steve Carrell, to deal with the young lad. Like a fish out of water or a deer caught in the headlights this nebbish loves the lifestyle of the rich and famous – until his life is thrown for a Loop by, what else, a girl.

    Twilight darling Kristen Stewart has her own share of man problems as the romantic dalliances become just a touch overpowering. Woody Allen wrote and directs this movie and it’s a who,e lot of fun. If you like witty dialogue, families in crises and a fond look at Judaism come unglued with hysterical stereotypes played for laughs in an enduring way the. Cafe Society will be just  what thee doctor ordered.
